All About the GAA Artist Program

Great American Art is passionate about artists, and nothing brings us more joy than helping artists get paid for their creative works. Here’s a little more info about submitting artwork for consideration.
There is no cost to you to be part of the artist program.
Our artist program isn’t for everyone. We do have very specific requirements for what works well for our markets, which include healthcare, senior living, corporate, government, and education. Therefore unfortunately not all submissions will be accepted. Although we respect all forms of art, we will not accept nude or political images into our program as they would not work with the markets we serve.
We have tried to make the process as simple as possible. You will submit a little information about yourself and 20 low-res images that represent the range of your work for our team to review for our program. Our team will make a decision within 24-48 hours, and you will be notified. If your art is approved you will receive a link, where you will fill out more information, upload a minimum of 50 images, and select your royalty level. From there your artwork should be published to the site within 48 hours, and will be available for projects within our online catalog. As artwork is sold, we pay the royalty you selected on the 15th of the following month.
Currently the Artist Portal is only for reproductions of artwork, which can be created on a variety of substrates from canvas to aluminum, to wood, to acrylic, and more. However, if you have original pieces you’d like us to consider, please contact us directly.
Although you will submit 20 low res images for consideration in our program, once accepted, artists should have a minimum of 50 hi-res images to upload. Why so many? We tend to work on large volume projects where we will want to draw from a selection of pieces with similar looks and feels. Keep in mind some of our top artists have very large portfolios. The more the merrier.
We get this question a lot, “do I have to supply Hi-Res images if accepted into the program?” The answer is yes, providing hi-res images is a requirement. We realize that this is a big decision for artists to make. We want you to know that we take this responsibility very seriously. All hi-res images are uploaded to our encrypted, and secure, Amazon server. The infrastructure we have in place in our web portal is created so we cannot access these files until a sale is triggered in our system.

Having the hi-res files on hand ensures that we are able to go straight to production once a sale is made. Without those files, we would need to track down a number of artists for each project, and run the risk of files no longer being available, or not the correct size or format for what we need. This holds up the production process for our clients and other artists on the project. This can also lead to new images needing to be selected and missed opportunities. This was a big reason why we have taken on this responsibility. We realize this isn’t going to be an ideal situation for every artist, and we respect your decision. But we want you know we take the protection of your artwork extremely seriously.

If you still have concerns, please feel free to reach out via email. We’d love to answer any more questions you have to make sure this is right for you.
